It was Isla Roundtree that used to ride for Zinn, and she now does the Islabikes kiddies bikes, before which she did Islabikes custom frame building for ladies - mostly cyclocross I think which is still her passion.

As mentioned in my earlier post...

Pics attached of the early IslaBike from MBUK sometime in '93...

The rear triangle was out of centre where the back end had not been jigged properly. I must stress this was when Zinn had been brought out by someone else and they did'nt seem to know how to set up the jigs. The frame from stock was spot on. I'll try and get pics of that. Sadly sold it before I brought my Pace in 1998.
